Switzerland pip Ecuador in Brasilia

11:28 am on 16 June 2014

Haris Seferovic scored in the last minute of injury time to grab Switzerland a dramatic 2-1 win against Ecuador in their group E game at the football World Cup finals in Brasilia.

Seferovic's winner capped a remarkable comeback by the top seeds in the group as fellow substitute Admer Mehmidi had taken just 121 seconds to make his mark as he levelled the game in the 48th minute.

Enner Valencia had given Ecuador the lead midway through the first-half as he scored for the fifth successive game for his country.

Victory was Switzerland's first against South American opposition in the World Cup finals having lost their previous four.
